Ethyco Fairtrade cup of coffee

Our Australian cousins are well known for their sophisticated diets. Now a Melbourne eatery has created the ‘smurf latte’.

The drink is named for its fun blue colour. But that’s where the fun ends. It doesn’t contain coffee, for a start. Instead it’s made from algae, lemon, ginger agave and coconut milk. And it costs AU$8 (about £4.50). No thanks, cobbers!
